We were joined by new GoodGymer Chris for this week's group run, and he fit straight in as not only a keen runner, but as someone interested in the social nature of GoodGym - arguably one of our best qualities!

David led us out with pickers in hand to our task destination of the Chelmer Navigation. We met Fay and Sallyann raring to go as usual, and got on with picking various items, or not picking in the case of a bottle containing some disgusting liquid.

Myself and Erin got a good arm workout carrying the bags of litter, whilst Andy expressed his amazement for Joe's central London Monday 5k in just under 20 minutes, and Ben took up posing responsibilities for the evening with a photo by the navigation.

Thanks everyone for helping to keep Chelmsford clean, and see you soon for more good work!

There were definitely bags. Not sure about "gins" though, unless you hid them all from me?
